Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

The team has had an extraordinarily busy year working on some of the largest, high profile cases domestically and internationally, growing accordingly. We have had 5 cases go to trial this year, which we believe, is the heaviest of any of the firms specialising in contentious trust and estates work. This year, the firm has opened new offices in Dubai and Hong Kong and the team has ensured a strong presence in both jurisdictions. I have been heavily involved in working with our new colleagues in Hong Kong.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Be the best you can and work hard.
